CONCERTS, FESTIVALS, PARTIES
Soloists to 10-member student groups perform throughout the year, often free to the public, for community festivals, corporate and organization events, private parties, schools, museums, public sites, hotels, and our annual Calypso Boogie® benefit party. Proficient students perform with professional musicians. Students guide audience members in hands-on steelpan exposure.
Students from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds share a joyous musical experience, with repertoire spanning many genres. They invite audiences to join their infectious energy and move to the rhythm.
CALYPSO BOOGIE 2018
This fun party partners our Musical Director Cecil Francis (the Calypso) with Floyd Domino (the keyboard Boogie), spotlights our students, and features great well-known guest musicians. Fun activities have even included a tropical hat contest and a lively silent auction with a unique collection of contributions from Austin businesses and artists.
